NEW MUSIC REVIEW: Press play on these hot tracks from Serani, Romain Virgo, Chris Gayle and the A-Team

Usain Bolt and NJ – “Living the Dream” 
They say you can achieve anything you want in life if you set your mind to it and believe. This breezy jam from the A-Team leaders drives this point home. Lyrically, it’s a bit short on substance but the empowering message is palpable.

Serani feat. Duke – “Somewhere in Jamaica” 
We need more contemporary reggae and dancehall tunes celebrating the island paradise that is ‘Sweet Jamdung’. Serani got the memo. Teaming up with Duke, he’s produced, recorded and released this winning and catchy, reggaeton-inflected number reminding us that when all is said and done nowhere is better than ‘yaad’. A- 

Chris Gayle – “Blessings” 
The self-proclaimed Universe Boss has a lot to be thankful for. On the cusp of retirement from international cricket, the multi-hyphenate superstar (now owner of Triple Century Records) continues his exploits as a recording artiste and respectable lyricist/vocalist with this reflective mid-tempo track centred on gratitude, perseverance, loyalty and keeping it real. B+ 

Romain Virgo feat. Busy Signal – Pray 
Is this the first time Virgo is joining forces with his favourite deejay? It seems so. Fresh off his smash collabo with Kevin Downswell (“Carry Me”), the prolific reggae crooner reconnects with listeners on this groovy, radio-ready track that’s all about emotional uplift and divine guidance. B+
